A Switzerland-based aircraft charter company has announced Biggin Hill as its new base. The company, named Perfect Aviation, has appointed a team in the UK to build its presence, including operation manager Gary Whitecunas. It has two UK-registered Learjet 45s and other aircraft based in Portugal and Moscow and takes a transparent approach to business by logging all expenditure with aircraft owners and sharing supplier invoices. “For too long some practitioners in the business aviation industry have hidden their real charges and remuneration from clients and instead explored convenient deals with suppliers – typically fuel & handling companies, maintenance companies and insurance suppliers,” explained Will Curtis, CEO of Perfect on the move. “This is an unsustainable model because, quite apart for the contractual implications between client and the aircraft management company, such practices are increasingly likely to breach criminal laws such as the UK Bribery Act”.
